Busy Weekend of Weapons

September 5, 2016

Well I got nearly all of my weapons over the weekend. I think the only class I haven’t gotten to is Demon Hunter, and I also didn’t do the Blood DK. Here is the list of what I have:

Death Knight: Frost and Unholy
Druid: Balance and Feral
Hunter: Beast Mastery
Mage: All 3 specs
Monk: Windwalker
Paladin: Retribution (x2)
Priest: Discipline and Shadow
Rogue: Outlaw and Subtlety
Shaman: Elemental and Enhancement
Warlock: Demonology
Warrior: Arms and Fury

So that’s … 20 artifact weapon quests. Which makes sense since I said I had 23 level 100s and haven’t done three of them. Yay basic math.
I posted the first 6 last week, so I did 14 over the weekend, which obviously I’m not going to post all at once. Let’s split these into 3 posts.


Not much to say here, really. Unholy is rather boring but very durable. This was also much easier than the Frost quest.



Um …I’m totally blanking … oh yeah that was the one that was in the hands of the Legion, yes? Obviously it didn’t make much of an impression on me. I think the only time I died was when I stood in some lava and didn’t realize it because everything is freaking fel green which lags me up.



Fire, fire, how I do love thee! I cackle with glee while everything around me burns. Seriously, the AoE and pyroblasts just decimate everything in my path. And this guy is supposed to be my bank alt … hmm …. someone else might be stuck with that job now.


The Scythe of Elune

The lore would have been fantastic if not for the fact that it was the same exact quest as Apocalypse. I mean seriously, no one has even heard of Apocalypse, so how can it have the same questline as the storied and mythical Scythe of Elune?? I understand the reasoning, but I’m sorry, the Scythe deserved better than that.


I also figured out during this one that I was doing the whole ‘cross the spectral barrier’ thing wrong. Apparently I’m supposed to silence his cast from range. The DK just hit his defensive cooldown and ran through it so I was like ‘ok no problem, me bear rawr’ and .. yeah. I mean, it worked, it just wasn’t what the devs intended. Oops?

Four More Artifacts

September 2, 2016

I am making steady progress getting through my artifact weapon quests. I generally have about three hours to play in the evening, which is time enough to do two of them a night and take my time about it. So here are the ones I got over the last two nights.

Skull of the Man’ari

This was appropriately full of demons and fel. As for the fights, well … since I’m still just getting started with the changes to the demonology spec, I was glued to my soul shards and pet indicators, trying to get everything in and buffed, and most of the fights were over before I knew it and I was standing there going ‘uh …’


Fists of the Heavens

This was the first one I died on. When I ran back, Li Li had pretty much finished off the mobs that did it. Do you know how embarrassing it is to have that tiny little girl panda showing you up, especially when you’re supposed to be a Grand Master? I think I know who I’m choosing as my successor.


There’s a pandaren in the cafe at the order hall that sings the most beautiful and haunting melody that I could stand there all day and just listen to him. Sadly though, for whatever reason, the monks’ order hall is not a rest area. I hope this is just a bug and it will be amended in a hotfix so that it will be like the others.

Blades of the Fallen Prince

Ok, wth? I mean, I used to main (ok fine co-main) DK and played all three specs, so I figured eh, frost DK, how hard can it be eh? Yeah I started on it Wednesday night and let me tell you, if you don’t know what you’re doing, which apparently I did not, you will have a hard time. I must have died a dozen times. I did make it to the final fight eventually, but it was clear that it wasn’t going to happen so I went to bed and spent part of yesterday studying up on my class.

I went back in last night with a couple of different talents and at least one ability on my bar that I had overlooked. (control undead is your friend!) I died exactly once. So .. yeah.


BTW, that right there is my new desktop background, to celebrate my victory over not knowing how to DK anymore. :p

Seeing Bolvar, er, the Lich King again was both cool and sad. But not NEARLY as shocking as the quest that came after I returned to Acherus with my new blades. I don’t want to spoil too much, so all I will say is that the Lich King wants me to raise a new set of Four Horsemen to be my generals or lieutenants or whatever. His choice for the first horseman blew me away. Like, whoa. Suffice it to say, Kaly jumped quite a few spots on my ‘play this toon first’ list because I can’t wait to see where this storyline goes (which I assume is part of the order hall campaign.)


Gggrrrrrrrrrrrrawr! My Tirion dies, and Thrall goes off (again) to ‘find himself’? Are you kidding me???

Thrall aside, it was pretty cool seeing all of the other shaman we have quested with in the past. Nobundo, Rehgar, Erunak, etc. And best of all, I got to go back to one of my favourite zones of all time, with one of my very favourite NPCs because come on, who is more badass than Stormcaller Mylra?


This questline was the most fun so far, just because I love Deepholm so much. I got Pebble out while I was there so he could see his old home and hang out a bit. There was a lot more to kill for this than some of the other quests but I really enjoyed it. I’m liking enhancement a lot and will probably play her some more.


I’ll see how many I can get through this weekend. I’ll probably have to break them up into multiple posts next week. I still have 3 mages, 2 druids, the other DK (or 2, but maybe not because I don’t think Kirgra has a 2H in her bags. I might just have Arelin do the blood one, too), 2 priests … I think that’s it. OH! And 2 rogues. And 2 warriors. So yeah … it may be awhile before I do any actual questing, but I’m ok with that. I mean seriously, we’re only 3 days into the expansion, there will be many many more.🙂

Guess who hit 100?


Yes, I KNOW the last character to ding was also a DK. But Kirgra and Arelin play much different from each other. She is specced dual wield frost, he is specced unholy. Frost is … easy … which can also cause it to be boring. Cooldowns? What is that? Burst? Bah. AoE! To be fair, all classes have had their number of cooldowns drastically reduced. But still … I keep reaching for my old raise dead button and missing my old temporary ghoul. Sort of. I mean, I have mini-Tormmok now I guess so it’s all good.


And Pepe. Yay Pepe!

The title says it all!

First we have Sanbec, with his solution to the human male face problem.


Yes, that is Mother Sharazz in the background.

And Kirgra, looking … happy? Death Knights are not supposed to be happy!


Juna, put down that camera, we’re about to pull Kargath! Peaches wants her noms!


Another of Juna, hanging out in Averry’s garrison before an invasion. Apparently she thinks invasion = beach party.


Interestingly enough, Van is my ‘main’ and he STILL hasn’t taken a selfie! He’s had plenty of playtime he just … I don’t know. I think he doesn’t really like his new face that much yet. I might have to make some adjustments to it again.
